Spring Gardens, Spalding PE11 2XL
The property presents an opportunity to use a former Fitness Centre / Gym Premises etc. with ancillary accommodation, for redevelopment and to an alternative use, subject to any necessary planning consent. The property lies in the heart of the market town of Spalding, the administrative centre of the South Holland District of Lincolnshire with an immediate population of some 25,000. Spalding offers extensive retail, banking, leisure and sporting facilities and is acknowledged as one of the focal fresh foods / transport hubs in the UK.
The town is located conveniently located close to Peterborough (18 miles), the A1 (20 miles) and with excellent road communications with the new A16, it is readily accessible to north, east and west road networks. It also has the benefit of a rail connection to Peterborough with London´s King´s Cross a minimum journey time of 45 minutes.
The location of this particular property is off the Sheep Market, close to The Crescent area of the town, in very much a central part of Spalding, in an area which is of mixed residential / commercial use.
Whilst no detailed planning consent has been obtained for a residential scheme, the Vendors have carried out extensive recent informal discussions with the Planning Authority, in respect of a possible scheme of residential development. Indicative sketch drawings and suggested development layouts have been prepared for the owners, and interested parties are able to inspect these if required. The informal discussions have indicated that such a scheme may be acceptable, subject to planning consent, and provides for 9 Flat Conversions to the original building. The site also lends itself to other alternative uses and interested parties should direct their enquiries to the Planning Department of South Holland District Council - .
The property lies within the Conservation Area of Spalding and, therefore, consideration as to use and design will have to reflect certain criteria. The building is noted as being of local heritage interest. Alternative uses might include:
- Private Club / Facilities
- Centre for Religious Worship
- Public House
- Convenience Store
Our clients are looking to receive unconditional offers at a guide price of £350,000, subject to contract.
The site enjoys an excellent frontage to Spring Gardens of approximately 12 metres and has an overall depth of approximately 36 metres, being more or less rectangular in shape and extending to a total site area of approximately 412sq.mtrs.
The present building has a historical prominence in the area having been built in around 1870, and prior to being in its present ownership form, was the former Geest Social Club for many years. Prior to that use, we understand, the property was a Club and Premises. The main building is of brick / slate construction with stone embellishments.
The rear building is of brick construction with a felt flat roof and is considered suitable for extension to form a first floor over with two of the proposed flat conversion being within this part of the property.
The indicative scheme for conversion of the main building would provide for a new floor to be created in the first floor studio, to provide for two storey duplex Apartments.
